    Formerly the best park in Denver before Denver Parks and Recreation created a mandatory permit system that limits the # of people that can play organized sports. Now no one goes to Wash Park anymore.

    If you are young, healthy and fun and you live in the city of Denver, you are probably here at least occasionally. Free tennis courts, basketball courts, flower gardens, two lakes, etc.

    It's buzzing with a lot of people of all age groups. It has a nice play area for kids, a nice lake with rental pedal boats and cycle rentals. I would say it is a perfect Saturday afternoon getaway!

  • Thrillist

    Nearby, there’s always volleyball going on, so quickly watch YouTube clips of Top Gun’s volleyball scenes to get psyched, and then slam the ball in people’s grills.

    Steer clear of the duck crap. My dog likes eating it and would likely give opposite advice,

  • Jeanie D.

    Watch put for bicycles and speed skaters. They'll knock you over and never look back! The more spandex they're wearing the meaner they are.

    During the summer, Wash Park is the place to be. Volleyball is always happening all over the fields as well as other activities. Perfect Sunday Funday location!
